On the Water
With F-One owner Raphael Salles being a top rider in the surf, it comes
as no surprise to the SBC test team that the F-One Signature is a top
performer. The Signature 5’6” is very smooth and fast on the water. Its
concave and Vector fins provide a ton of lift. Despite its heavier
weight, the board is very lively and easy to manoeuvre into turns. It
has great grip on edge and can be aggressively turned both toeside and
heelside. Definitely an excellent choice for strapped riding in some
powerful waves. The use of bamboo make this the board of choice for the
environmentally conscious too.
The F-One Signature features Bamboo Sandwich Technology. Laminated bamboo top and bottom sheets are specifically engineered to provide unsurpassed durability and rigidity to take the abuse of kiteboarding in the surf. The F-One has the most solid construction of all the surfboard tested, but doesn’t feel heavy underfoot.
Footbed and Strap System
The F-One Signature comes complete with two soft surf footstraps and custom logos and graphics on the deck pads. The straps are symmetrical making them ideal for riding regular or goofy.
